Spring Downtown After Hours: "Opening Avenues"

The Do It All Downtown group cordially invites you to our next Downtown After Hours to be held Monday, April 30th from 5-7pm at the Cellar at Front Street Taproom (lower level). Pizza from Rhombus Guys will be provided. 

For those of you not familiar with the Do It All Downtown group, our mission is to bring Downtown business owners, employees, residents, and general Downtown enthusiasts together over common issues and camaraderie. We are a group of Downtown advocates that are excited to share our Downtown community with all of Fargo-Moorhead. Do It All Downtown is our collaborative grassroots effort to promote the positive image and vibrancy of Downtown. 

This month’s Downtown After Hours theme is, “Opening Avenues." The idea behind “Opening Avenues” is to create dialog about all the exciting projects, developments, and changes happening in Downtown Fargo. One of our goals is to always actively keep both Downtowners and the community at large informed about what’s happening in the heart of our city. Now, more than ever, this is crucial. We are excited for the future of Downtown and its continued vibrant evolution.

This will be a great opportunity to connect with those active in and passionate about our Downtown in an informal setting. There will not be a formal panel for questions and answers, but we encourage you to interact with all present that evening. If you wish to make a brief statement regarding Downtown and your vision for it, or interest in it, we encourage you to do so!

We hope to see you on the 30th! If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to reach out to any of us. 

Cheers! 
Josie, Adrienne, Laura, Erica, Mark, Rick, and Jack

BHA Pint Night

BHA Pint Night

Join BHA members and bring other outdoor enthusiasts together on the mezzanine of Front Street to share stories and discuss conservation issues. Find out how you can help protect our public lands by visitingbackcountryhunters.org

About Back Country Hunters:

Looking back, looking forward: A brief history of BHA
The campfire flared and popped, the undulating light casting crisp shadows across the seven faces gathered around it. The faces were somber yet resolute. There had been a lot of talk about loss, habitat destruction on favorite mountains, pollution of beloved waters. But a high note was rising through it all.

On that March evening of 2004 in the southern Cascade foothills outside Eagle Point, Oregon, seven visionaries saw a lot of problems with the management of our nation’s wild places and public lands. But they also conceived a means to address these problems. Onto this auspicious stage, Backcountry Hunters & Anglers was born.

Mike Beagle, on whose property they were gathered, Dick Hentze, Tim Lillebo, James Montieth, Tony Heckard, Michelle Halle and Brian Maguire set out to create a grassroots organization focused not on protecting one specific species, river or hunting area but on ecosystem-wide conservation across the continent. They wanted to create a voice for the silent wilderness.

Thirteen years later, more than ten thousand faces are gathered around that campfire, around that idea. That wilderness voice can be heard from the lonely tundra of Alaska to the raucous chambers of Congress in Washington, D.C. Backcountry Hunters & Anglers is now, more than ever, advancing positive change for our nation’s hunting and fishing heritage.

Downtown Books & Brews
Oct

7:00 PM19:00

Downtown Books & Brews

Zandbroz Variety and Front Street Taproom are teaming up to bring you the coolest downtown Fargo book club you’ll ever encounter – Downtown Books & Brews. After all, books make you smarter and beer makes you cooler. Or, at least that’s what we like to tell ourselves. Join us on the mezzanine of Front Street on the last Thursday of every month at 7pm to discuss the book of the month. Our hope is to choose books that will ignite thoughts and discussion, encourage you to step outside of your reading comfort zone, and to host a meetup filled with great conversation, different perspectives and of course, great local beer!

***The Book of the Month is Avaialble for Purchase at Zandbroz, MENTION that it’s for Downtown Books & Brews and Receive 20% off your book! All attendees will receive Happy Hour Pricing @ Front Street Taproom from 7-9pm the night of the meetup!*** 

Zandbroz Variety is an independent book and gift store that has been making downtown fun since ‘91 with a broad mix of books, toys, stationary, bath & body, home décor and so (so) much more. Front Street Taproom opened its doors in October of ’16 and with a commitment to support local small business, has 30 tap lines dedicated to Minnesota and North Dakota brewed beer, kombucha and cider as well as local and regional wine, soda and munchies. 

OCTOBER BOOK OF THE MONTH: Heroes of the Frontier - Dave Eggers - (Read Description Below) 

Josie and her children's father have split up, she's been sued by a former patient and lost her dental practice, and she's grieving the death of a young man senselessly killed shortly after enlisting. When her ex asks to take the children to meet his new fiancée's family, Josie makes a run for it to Alaska with her kids, Paul and Ana. At first their trip feels like a vacation: they see bears and bison, they eat hot dogs cooked on a bonfire, and they spend nights parked along icy cold rivers in dark forests. But as they drive in their rattling old RV, pushed north by the ubiquitous wildfires, Josie is chased by enemies both real and imagined, and past mistakes pursue her tiny family, even to the very edge of civilization. A captivating, often hilarious novel of family, loss, wilderness, and the curse of a violent America, Heroes of the Frontier is a powerful examination of our contemporary life and a rousing story of adventure.

***NOVEMBER BOOK OF THE MONTH: To be announced! We'd love to hear from you, drop some suggestions in this event!
